Parade Gardens


Parade Gardens occupies a triangular site bounded to the south by North Parade, to the north-east by the River Avon, and to the west by Pierrepont Street and Grand Parade.

These delightful two-and-a-half acre gardens are Bath’s most popular pleasure grounds. They give fine views of Pulteney Bridge and the weir, especially from the colonnade which was built early in the last century.

The bedding displays are among the finest in the country and are particularly noted for their displays of traditional carpet and sculptural bedding. The annual 3D floral feature in the summer is always fun.

Concerts are held in the bandstand throughout the summer months and it is even possible to hire the bandstand as a wedding venue!  During the summer months, children’s entertainment is provided and deck chairs are available. Picnics are allowed but there is also a charming café with outdoor seating, serving sandwiches, cakes and cream teas.
